Dhaka, Bangladesh

A woman wades along a street through knee deep flood water.

Water is essential for survival, yet in Bangladesh water also has the power to destroy anything in its path. For months at a time, monsoon season brings heavy rainfall to the country. In fact, approximately 80% of Bangladesh's annual rainfall will occur from June to October, and by the end of monsoon season, almost one third of the country is underwater.
